#28. Remembering childhood foods
Tuesday, October 02, 2018
While eating breakfast this morning, I found myself thinking about a breakfast that my brother and I used to have as very young kids in Ontario: Bread and milk.
Literally, it was pieces of bread in a bowl, covered with milk. In really cold weather, the milk was warmed.
I have never heard anybody mention that food. Were we the only family who ate it?
A real favorite was hot Cream of Wheat with brown sugar and milk.
There was also cinnamon toast: with cinnamon and sugar spread over melted butter. (I use that technique today for French toast for my grandkids, and they love it.)
Another food our family ate was cucumber sandwiches. Anyone else?
It is fun to be visited by these memories of food from way back when.
Food is so very different today.
